In maths we are learning 3D shapes. Cone, cube, cuboid, pyramid, cylinder and sphere. We would be grateful if you could help your child to recognise these. Perhaps when you are out and about you could ask your child to find these shapes. For example, whilst playing football you could ask your child "What shape is the ball?" (sphere), or whilst playing a game "What shape is the dice?" (cube) etc. We challenge you to find a pyramid! Thank you for your help and support.
We would be extremely grateful if parents could help their child to learn their number bonds to 10 off by heart as follows:
ie 1+9 = 10
9+1 = 10
Could we also ask that you help your child to place in order 3 non-consecutive numbers to 20. Choose 3 random numbers then ask your child to place these in order starting from either the lowest number or the highest number.
For example if I chose 19, 7 and 15, starting from the lowest number my child would put them in order as follows 7, 15 and 19. Starting from the highest number this would become 19, 15 and 7.
If you require any additional information regarding either of the above exercises please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you for your help and support.
In maths we are now counting to 30. Could you please practise with your child. We really appreciate your help.
The children have done so well with counting to 20 we are now counting to 30 but also in reverse back down to zero. Your help is obviously working so please continue. Thank you very much for your support.
30.9.19 In maths we are learning "part, part, whole". For example, if you have 6 as the whole number, this could be made into two parts - 4 and 2. Can you help your child to find other ways to split whole numbers (from 2 to 10) into part, part numbers.
In maths when we were writing our number sentences we used to write something and something makes something ie, 2 and 2 makes 4. However, because we are getting so grown up in Year 1 we now write something plus (or add) something equals something ie, 2 + 2 = 4.
We would love our grown ups to write us out some simple sums to practise.
